From December 5 to January 6, the Moll de la Fusta will host the fourth edition of “Christmas at the Port”. The Port’s objective is to actively join Barcelona’s Christmas offer and, at the same time, promote culture and maritime heritage among the citizens and consolidate the Moll de la Fusta as a meeting place that strengthens the relationship between the Port and the city.
The traditional lighting of the lights took place on December 5, with performances by Edu from “Eufòria” (talent search tv program), the Palau “Vincles” Choirs – a socio-musical project of the Palau de la Música – and the Mitjans Choir of l the Orfeó Català, who performed traditional Christmas pieces.
As a novelty this year, the Christmas Market has had a sustainable and ecological ice rink of 400 m² to enjoy the activity with the family. This activity is added to the traditional attractions such as the old carousel, the little train and the 65-meter observation wheel.
“Christmas at the Port” has spaces for the dissemination of port and maritime culture, where activities and workshops for children are developed, where they can learn to be stevedores moving containers of goods, get started in the world of rowing or enjoy the sea with games. The Catalan Sailing Federation, the America’s Cup, the Institute and Faculty of Nautical Studies, the Royal Maritime Club, the Barcelona Swimming Club, Sails for Alzheimer’s, or the company Hutchison Ports Best, among others, made this interesting recreational-cultural offer a reality.
Once again, the Market will be the meeting point for the organizations and music schools of the neighbourhoods near the Port. More than 500 people will perform on the main stage during these days, which also hosts the Solidary Dancing to raise funds for La Marató de TV3 and Catalunya Ràdio, dedicated to cardiovascular health.
At the Market you will be able to taste a wide range of gastronomic products as well as find handmade and real articles.
This is the number of lights that make up the lighting in the Moll de la Fusta. A spectacular zenithal lighting along the dock with the Christmas ball passable through its interior, will be the protagonists of a spectacular spectacle of light and music every evening.
A nativity scene and the Three Kings will illuminate the water where the historic ships of the Maritime Museum of Barcelona are docked: the Pailebot Santa Eulàlia and the Faro Barcelona, decorated for the occasion and open to visit.
